Reverse: Represented from the principle used in architecture in antiquity in the form of a golden cross-section, which is expressed in a geometric figure - a rectangle. The basic principle of the golden section is to divide the perfect segment into two parts, so that the ratio of the longer part to the shorter one is equal to the whole coupling with the longitudinal part. From the ancient times, this formula was considered to be aesthetically perfect, or, in other words, the proportion of gold. Also, the words SECTIO AUREA are reversed.
